Question about Computers & Internet
Here's A Problem You Probably Don't See Much Of If Ever...
Concerning My Sharp ZR-5800 Zaurus pda > My data locked-up on me a week ago...
More correctly & specifically, I am locked-out of my contacts file > Not sure why since I still have un-used memory > However, my colleague mentioned that I may have too much data stored into a single file, the contacts file, causing a data lock-up...
Did try re-booting by removing & replacing the batteries, but that didn't work > Of course I could re-set the unit but that would delete all stored data.
Does anyone out there know a trick or code to un-locking this unit???
This pda unit is not locked-up due to a secrete location or password...
Any Help Or Assistance Would Be Greatly Appreciated.........

It is quite difficult to understand the problem, as you keep rejecting all answers immediately. In this way no expert is going to follow you in troubleshooting your problem. Many expert will just post a single sentence etc.
In all the confusion generated by your misuse of Fixya I understood you have passworded unrecoverable Data (lost password) or corrupt Data. If this is the situation what you need to do is saving a backup of your contacts into a computer, reset the machine to factory as posted, then restore all your data.
A reset had already been suggested, I am sure you would have got to this same point dialoguing whith experts proposing this solution.
Refuse what you want but this is what you need to do.Save a backup, restore to factory, restore your files from backup.
Here is the manual
Follow instruction from manual to connect to computer and save your data. You can also connect wirelessly.
I hope you find a better way to interact proficiently with experts next time you use Fixya.

Correct me if i am wrong.All you need is the important contact detail files and other things from your memory card.Then why don't you use this memory card on your laptop.If you have a card reader reader on your laptop insert the card in it and transfer the file using THIS SOFTWARE
Then once you get them back on your laptop just format your card and transfer the contact files on it again.
Well this is the only solution i believe.If you still face the problem you will have to contact the customer support of your product about this problem.

I have lost all comm ports for exchanging info to and from my Zaurus 5000. It says my ports are being used by my mouse which is not true.
Anyone have any ideas on how to retrieve ports?
